Subject: Best and Worst
The scene: We got into the parking lot and the vibe in the bus should have let us know what we were in store for. Me and Larry had a blow-up about nothing. The whole lot vibe was really tense. I was in the hallway by the speakers during the first set and I saw someone popping a door open to allow some people in. Bad news. Next thing you know, it gets popped open once more and more than a dozen people push through before security shows up. Next thing you know, the glass doors are being busted in and over a hunder assholes are streaming in - while I'm pinned against the wall in horror at what my brothers and sisters are doing. And the worst part is that people inside were actually cheering for this. Later I found out that Chard wound up in the hospital after a vial of liquid broke in his pocket. His parents had to come down and he missed the rest of the tour. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. What a great show musically, but what a disaster in every other respect.
The music: damn, this is a fine fine show musically. Great song selection and fantastic, energetic playing. I'm not even going to point out any highlights - it's all good.

For an AUD tape, this is a great job!
As to the sound. I have yet to hear a completely satisfactory representaion of this one. Haven't downloaded the one commercially available though. I do like the audience one I have on tape. The old download I have sound like it's from the same source as my tape so....everything here is comparable. Believe me I've checked it all out.
The rest of the show is great too but...well selct your favourite sound quality from these postings and just listen to 'em go. Heaven. Five for the Shakedown. This is a dance show!!
